If you celebrate your birthday this week:
Your Year Ahead
This is your year for networking, updating your appearance, or, if attached, making things more serious. Singles, too, should strike while the iron is hot. The months ahead find you feeling feisty, yet settled. Mutual trust extends to friendships, too. Money, however, may concern you - especially if someone in your life doesn’t understand the concept of savings.
Aries (March 21 - April 20)
This week brings a welcome turning point. As there’s no telling where unexpected offers and invitations may lead, why not take a few calculated risks? Financial problems should also start to ease. Finally, those outstanding debts can be cleared.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
While your composure usually keeps you out of trouble, less sensible minds seem determined to stay on a collision course. So, again - you may have to clean up after others. Recently, too, you’ve been more insular. This week, emotional barriers start to tumble.
Gemini (May 21 to June 21)
Sometimes a time-out does the trick. Take a day off from whatever is making you tetchy and, like magic, you may feel in your right mind again. Talking to an objective friend can also help. It could help you to stabilise a situation, and make changes from there.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
You may be tempted to shift the blame onto others and why not, when everyone else is doing the same? It’s a week where there’s little room to manoeuvre. No one in particular is at fault. It’s more a case of each for themselves. And you’ve every right to follow suit.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
If people are suddenly sniping at you, it’s because you’ve only just come into their sights. Getting noticed has its perils, but at least it means you’re sitting in the spotlight. Use this week to push your ideas and projects ahead a notch. Get one step ahead of the rest.
Virgo (August 24 - September 22)
No one can accuse you of not pulling your weight. You’ve been working long and hard, so stay primed for special surprises. Perhaps a pay increase or a small lotto win? Many Virgos also seem to be back in touch with every friend on the planet. Fun follows.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
If you feel you’ve fallen short of the mark, maybe you’re just not seeing things right. Others might seem talented in areas you want to excel at, but you needn’t clone their actions. For a start, no one’s perfect. More importantly, you’ve your own very special abilities.
Scorpio (October 24 - November 22)
Daily routine is happily abandoned when you fall into the company of exciting new friends. For singles, the cosmos conjures up someone especially interesting. For those already coupled, passions reach boiling point - then settle to a steady simmer.
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21)
If waiting for good fortune, this could be your lucky week - both financially and emotionally. Positive change should also bring a deeper understanding of what you truly want from life. Be prepared to share. The more you give, the more you get.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
We all make mistakes, and there’s a tendency to repeat some time and time again. So you’d think that by now you would have learned to listen to that inner voice, the one that suggests reason. This week you’ll either heed the lesson, or stumble back to square one.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
Whether or not you’re ready for a full-on week is beside the point. The fact is, it’s here and there’s no way you can ignore it. Your biggest concern: maintaining concentration. But it’s imperative that you stay focused. Tackle one thing at a time.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
A significant other plays an important role in current achievements. As a result, this relationship enters a new level of commitment that’s not just physical. Friends are also likely to be more supportive, proving that a little help can go a long way.
